France Welcomes its First Hotel Indigo® to Paris’ Operatic Heart

September 19, 2014 // Franchising.com // InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world's leading hotel companies, announces the debut of its boutique brand, Hotel Indigo®, in France, with the opening of Hotel Indigo® Paris – Opera at the heart of the capital's entertainment district. The new hotel marks a milestone for the brand as the 60th Hotel Indigo hotel globally, opening in the brand's 10th anniversary year.

The 57-room Hotel Indigo Paris – Opera is set in the elegant Opera quartier of Paris. Encircled by the most prestigious theatres, music halls and opera houses in France – as well as lesser-known but equally enthralling venues – the area was shaped by Haussmann and is best known for its ornate opera house: The Palais Garnier, which provided the inspiration for Gaston Leroux's world famous 'Phantom of the Opera'.

As IHG's boutique brand, every Hotel Indigo property is designed to reflect the local neighbourhood. From the building design to the hotel's artwork to the locally inspired menus, every Hotel Indigo is unique to its surroundings, so no two hotels are the same. Hotel Indigo Paris – Opera truly reflects the fabric of its neighbourhood. Unique touches echo the area's cultural charm and opulent architecture throughout the hotel.

Vincent Poulingue, General Manager, Hotel Indigo Paris – Opera comments, “Hotel Indigo Paris – Opera is located right at the heart of the action. Paris is brimming with history and culture, and this neighbourhood provides the perfect base for exploring our enchanting city. We look forward to welcoming guests and helping them to explore both the famous landmarks and hidden gems located on every corner.”

Tom Rowntree, Vice President Brand Management Upscale & Luxury Brands, Europe IHG said, “We're proud to be opening our first Hotel Indigo in France in the key location of Paris. The hotel has been designed to reflect all of the charm and style of this fashionable and dynamic city, to give guests a truly Parisian experience. The Hotel Indigo brand continues to grow from strength to strength. We opened Hotel Indigo Madrid – Gran Via, Hotel Indigo Rome – St. George and Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg Tchaikovskogo earlier this year and have a further 13* hotels in the pipeline.”

Hotel Indigo Paris Opera will operate under a management agreement between IHG and SAS Maud. The Hotel Indigo brand was launched in the United States in 2004, making it one of IHG's youngest brands and today, there are over 100 hotels in the global system size and pipeline combined. IHG, one of the world's leading hotel companies, with over 4,700 hotel globally across a broad family of nine brands to meet the needs of guests, whatever the occasion. Hotel Indigo offers guests the individuality of a boutique hotel but with the benefits and reassurance of a big hotel company.
